• The paper backing is to help stabilize the project while you are working it. The theory is that you will find it easier to handle if you sew the strips and pieces onto a paper which is later pulled off. I don't use paper backing on mine, because I do all my quilt sewing by hand, and I don't need a stabilizer, like sewing machine users need.
